Weight loss can be a challenge in many people's lives—including that of Dr. Eric Spencer. After shedding 40 of his own unwanted pounds, he founded Monarch Medical Weight Loss with a team of fellow doctors and now serves as chief medical advisor of the nonsurgical clinic system. Many of the practitioners and staffers have triumphed at their own slimming efforts, serving as both inspiration and role models to their patients. The diet programs at Monarch Medical Weight Loss range from quick jump-start plans to full, lifelong memberships, all incorporating healthy, educated eating and sensible behavior modification. Pound-dropping success stories can be found on the website, as told by firefighters, grandmothers, couples, and retired dumbbells.
